to practice Linux -Networking(Samba squid and all that
stuff), now do do
this i had an Athlon 1800+ already with Microsucks & Suse 9.3 .Now to go
ahead with my work i purchased a 2nd hand pentium mmx 166 mhz with 32 mb
ram.my question to the group is will this oldie satisfy my networking needs.
This box will serve as a good internet gateway and firewall. You can
install samba/squid on it and it will work too, but you need large RAM
to actually put it to some practical use.
